There is still time


…for time (imagine proper accent here, i.e., the Greek word for honor), if you register this week for Centennial Reunions!

We already have more than 1,700 people scheduled to attend one or more of the 230+ events occurring as part of the grand celebration, June 6-12, 2011.

You know Reunions will be a great convergence of many Reedies, interesting ideas, and boundless energy… but this year Reed College is turning 100! This is a momentous celebration for all alumni, newly minted or longer in the tooth–and irrespective of class year. It will be a week filled with festivities, including live music, food showcases, and a carnival with a hot-air balloon and Ferris wheel, not to mention a full schedule of amusements (one tour, the Reed & Ladd legacy tour, still has spots available).

With so many balls in the air, it helps us immensely when you make a good faith effort to sign up (if you have already done so, we greatly appreciate it!). If you have not pre-registered for a certain day, but show up on that day, we will need to send you to Reunions Central in Eliot 207 (not in the SU this year) to register and pay before being allowed to attend. 

During busy times–especially Friday and Saturday before dinner–you may have to stand in line and wait to register. Please have patience with the good people putting on this party; may the Honor Principle flourish!

With so many people coming to campus, we ask that you take public transit or acquaint yourself with the best parking options, especially on Friday and Saturday. In addition to the east, west, and north parking lots, we have asked neighborhood organizations to make additional spaces available. You’ll see “Reed Parking” signs in all three of these lots on Friday, June 10.

1.  Friends of Reedway Church, 2901 SE Steele St.

This is between of SE 28th St. and the north parking lot, on the north side of the street.

2.  Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, 6015 Southeast 28th Ave.

Not too many spots here, but it’s located directly across from the west lot.

3.  Lot on the corner of SE Steele St. & SE 28th Ave.

This is the vacant lot (not striped) at the NE corner of campus, kitty corner from the 7-11.

If these fill up, street parking is encouraged on Steele St. Please do not to park in the neighborhood, especially off of Woodstock Blvd. Also, keep in mind that Saturday at 2 p.m. we will close the west lot, rhody garden, and the church for the set up of fireworks.
